PASSING HILLY PASTORAL SCENE

Saturday's route of the Hilly Hundred brought us to the lunch stop atop and beautiful vista. If I counted one abandoned, unused barn I counted a hundred. Are these icons of the American pastoral scene simply decaying into the landscape? They are being replaced--when they ARE replaced--by aluminum and steel buildings. I wonder if, fifty years from now, someone will be wondering if we are really going to let these ramshackle aluminum storehouses collaspse into the landscape?
